About: Albatross ...

As clumsy an albatross is on land, the elegant an albatross is when airborne. It's amazing to see them gliding in the wind at see then pass you at high speeds.

Especially landing and take-off is a real challenge. Probably that's why they airborne most of the time. Flying seems effortless. Using the slightest, hardly noticeable change in their wings make them turn. Hardly ever will they need to use their wings to maintain or gain altitude.

Since then I encountered one in Spain (while on a whales spotting tour) and a large colony Waved Albatross on Punta Suarez, Espanola (Galapagos).
